22nd July – A night and a day in Sevila, the beautiful city!

After the very hard decision to leave Tarifa I aimed straight for Seville, planning to stay at a Marina near the city. When I got there it was private (of course!) so I decided to free camp next door in the car park.

This turned out to be right on the edge of the city and a 10 minute bike ride to the centre.

Seville is a beautiful city, it was hot, but worth stopping to see some of the sights. My only regret is that I didn’t stay a little longer, but it was 44 degrees hot!!

At night there was a great atmosphere on the streets, lively but chilled, and I found the food stalls on the Triana bridge, ate some tapas, wandered round, and watched the end of a massive open air film from the see of the river.

After little sleep I got up early and headed straight to see some of the main sights as recommended by my good friend Virginia (Gracias bonita!).

The Plaza de España was very impressive, and I learnt afterwards used as a film set in Star wars, and Lawrence of Arabia amongst others.

The Cathedral of Seville was also very impressive, both inside and out, I overheard a tour guide saying it is the 3rd largest in the world, built on top of an original mosque site.

The views of the city from the Giralda were good.

After some more touristing around the heat got to much for me so I chilled in the park and decided to call it a day and drove to my final Spanish beach in Avamonte, before heading into Portugal tomorrow.

A little more chilled than Tarifa when I left yesterday!
